Mayhem Monday: My Best Personal Worst Yet!

I haven’t completely lost it, I know it’s actually Tuesday but I was so exhausted when I got home from Grand Forks that all I wanted was to hug and kiss my babies and go to bed. And that’s pretty much was I did.

The weekend away was awesome. After the emotions that went into last week’s Run for Mum’s event and the general stress I’ve been under, it was nice to have a weekend full of doing things that were carefree. Namely running, shopping and girl time. It was exactly what I needed. Full race recap will come later in the week but I will say that it was a fantastic race, a lot of fun and even though I wasn’t in it for a specific time (I left the Garmin at home…gasp!), it felt so good to run. So, so, so, so, so, so good!! I’m no where near ready to run regularly again and I’m not taking the chance at another set-back because of impatience but I wanted to do this, felt I could and was mentally prepared to walk all 10km if I needed too. Thankfully, I didn’t because it was rainy, windy and c-c-c-cold out there!

All hotel bathrooms should be this loud. There was some serious textile overload going on here.

I even ended up coming home with birthday gifts for my niece an nephew, Christmas gifts, and a couple of things for hubby and I. I will seriously do anything to avoid having to go anywhere near a mall or toy store from October-January <shudders>.

This week is kind of up in the air. Work is busy and I have a conference later in the week so I’m toying with the idea of using this week to recharge my battery and relax. I’m worn out and as much as I need the mental and physical break a good workout gives me, I need the recharge even more. Sometimes things happen for a reason and I think the fact that this injury has forced me to slow down a lot is no coincidence.

That’s all for now. I have some much needed relaxation to do :)
